Hey I have recently started playing Minecraft and found some chainmail but I can't find anything to make chainmail armour with? What resources do I need to make chainmail ?

Chain mail cannot be crafted, but it can be obtained from villager trading. You'll need to find a blacksmith villager who has the trade for it.

Despite being relatively weak, the trade is rarer than iron or diamond armour.

In addition to trading for it, chain mail is a rare drop worn by zombies and skeletons, but usually very damaged. You can eventually save enough parts from a mob grinder to craft into a full set.

Also, chain mail can be repaired on an anvil using iron ingots. –  Kcats Jan 31 at 8:12

Chain mail can only be made using fire which can only be found in creative mode. You can't make the armor legitimately but you can find it with blacksmith villagers.

However you can also find it with priest villagers. This requires Iron bars with 2 or 3 emeralds. To get an enchanted version or the chain mail.
